The Cleveland Browns have a long history that started out with an amazing era of success in the 1950s and early 1960s. They have also had some down times during their existence as a pro football franchise too though. Along the way, the team has always seemed to put an emphasis on the running game. 100 yard games are a great way to measure how good a running back is doing.
